Gloria is the worst student ever to attend Madame Pestilence's Academy. Not only does she muddle her magic spells and flunk broom drill, she gets in trouble for smiling too much! When Gloria hears about a wonderful holiday called Christmas, she decides she wants to be a Christmas witch, working good spells for peace and fun. It's no easy task-but Gloria is no ordinary witch!

"Deliciously detailed, semi-spooky art spices... a sci-fi spin, an old adage or two, and jiggers of ghoulishness and glee." -Publishers Weekly

"Illustrated with all of Kellogg's usual zest and energy and filled with diverting detail." -The Horn Book

Gloria is an oddball at Madame Pestilence's Academy for Young Goblins and Witches: Her spells don't work, and she keeps smiling, even while eating cockroach casserole.
